Study Title: "A placebo-controlled evaluation of butterbur and fexofenadine on objective and subjective outcomes in perennial allergic rhinitis."
Number of Participants: 16
Length of Study: Placebo-controlled, Randomized, Double-blind Cross-over Trial
Type of Study: Placebo-controlled Evaluation of the effects of Butterbur and Fexofenadine (Allegra) on subjective and objective outcomes in patients with perennial allergic rhinitis
Publication: Clinical and Experimental Allergy
Study Result: Butterbur superior to Allegra in 2 of 3 measures for Nasal Allergies

In this double-blind, placebo-controlled study, the effects of Butterbur extract were compared to fexofenadine (Allegra) for perennial nasal allergies. Sixteen patients were given either Butterbur extract for a week or fexofenadine in the cross-over study.

Three measures of effectiveness were recorded for both Butterbur and fexofenadine:

  1. Peak Nasal Air Inflow
  2. Effectiveness after 60 Minutes
  3. Total Nasal Symptom Score

Butterbur extract was superior to fexofenadine in Peak Nasal Air Inflow and Effectiveness after 60 Minutes, and both Butterbur extract and fexofenadine were significantly superior to placebo. Butterbur extract and fexofenadine were equally effective in the Total Nasal Symptom Score.

The results highlight a potential role for Butterbur extract in nasal allergies.

When multivitamins were used for more than 3 years, women were found to have a 35% reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease. The researchers concluded:

We found an association between multivitamin use of >3 years and reduced cardiovascular disease mortality risk for women when models controlled for age, race, education, body mass index, alcohol, aspirin use, serum lipids, blood pressure, and blood glucose/glycated hemoglobin.
